What Is The Takata Airbag Recall?

Takata determined that a defect related to motor vehicle safety.

It is important to note that for vehicles that are part of the Takata recalls, the issue is the airbag inflator and not the actual airbag. The supplier for the airbag and airbag inflator can be different for the same vehicle; it’s also possible to have different suppliers for the driver– and passenger–side airbag inflators in your vehicle. 

If your vehicle is affected, you will receive a letter from Ford notifying you of the recall. You should schedule an appointment with your dealer to have your vehicle serviced for the recall. If your vehicle experiences an issue in the meantime, you should contact your local dealership.
